Just trying to find an HDD for mass storage in the range of 2 tb. Both the Seagate and WD BLue drives seem to have a large amount of 1 star "failed within a few months" reviews across Amazon and NewEgg.
That seems pretty high..
Could this just be an effect of people with a bad product being more inclined to write a review, or is that a normal failure rate a brand new HDD?
